Suppliers

Our business relies on a complex and expanding network of suppliers.

Supporting Woodside’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

Throughout the duration of Woodside's 2016-2020 RAP, we worked with our contractors to continue to provide opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses. We thank our contractors for sharing our commitment in growing the number of employees, trainees and contracting opportunities in our host communities.

To find out more about our contributions under the 2016-2020 RAP, read the 2020 Report here, and the statement from Woodside’s Chief Procurement Officer here.

Our approach

We have a standardised approach to developing category and contracting strategies, supplier selection and evaluation, supplier and contractor management, and procure-to-pay activities. We identify and quantify supply-chain risks, with appropriate controls and performance measures included in contract and supplier management plans. Shared values are important to us, and our anti-bribery and corruption due-diligence processes ensure appropriate screening, evaluation and monitoring of current and potential suppliers.

Supplier Code of Conduct
Improving health, safety, environmental, social and governance performance within our supply chains benefits our communities, and our business. Our Supplier Code of Conduct details what we expect from our suppliers and contractors to uphold our values and standards.

Australian Industry Participation Plans (AIPPs)

Woodside is committed to providing full, fair and reasonable opportunity for local Australian industry to contribute to our activities. Over 80% of our spend is with Australian businesses. We use AIPPs to maximise local industry participation where it is capable and competitive on the basis of health, safety and environment, quality, cost and delivery.

We look for suppliers who share our commitment to health and safety, and work with our host communities. Find out more about how our Reconciliation Action Plan is powering more opportunities for Indigenous Australian businesses.

Advance fee fraud scams
We never ask prospective suppliers for upfront fees. If your business receives a request for upfront payment from someone claiming to represent Woodside, please report the matter to your local law enforcement agency, and let us know through our Contact page. We are working with authorities to identify Advance Fee Fraud Scams and limit their impact.
